This is how it works:

  • Players are organised into groups of between 5 to 9 people of a similar standard
  • It is a mixed sex, singles league, so men and women play each other
  • Groups are put together by standard and there can be any combination of men and women in a group (we do not guarantee a balance of men and women and you could be the only man in a group of women or vice versa!)
  • Contact details are emailed and posted to each player's account page
  • Players arrange their own matches
  • You can play on any court that suits both players

The league is:

  • For everyone over the age of 18
  • We welcome beginners as well as advanced players.
  • Don't worry that you won't be good enough - playing matches is the best way to improve, and we use an online questionnaire to assess people's ability so you play only people of a roughly similar level
  • Affiliated to the LTA For adults aged 18 years and above 

Key points

  • Matches are best of three sets; if a set reaches 6 games all it is decided by a tiebreak
  • The evening before the round starts you will receive an email with all the contact details of the players in your group. Contact details are also posted to your Account Page
  • Players are placed in groups according to past performance in the league and, for new players, their Player Standard Questionnaire
  • Each player attempts to play each of the other player on their group once during the round
  • A point is awarded for each set won
  • If you complete three matches before the midpoint of a round you receive 2 bonus points and a bonus prize (either a pair of Local Tennis Leagues dampeners, or a tube of tennis balls)
  • The winner of the group is the player with the most points at the end of the round
  • The winner of the group wins a voucher for £20 to be spent in the Local Tennis League online shop. A winner's certificate is also posted to the winner's Account Page as a PDF file.
  • Where possible, winners of groups are promoted to the group above for the next round.

Reveal CommentAmit Dave bt Adrian Britton (Oct 20) 6-4, 4-6, 7-5

Player Comments:

  • "Not exactly sure how Amit won this match. It was back and forth on the clay courts at Blackheath Tennis Club for the best part of 2 hours. Adrian's style of play is dangerously suited to the clay courts. His consistent play and placements made for an entertaining game. Each player breaking each other several times in the first and second sets with hairline differences in points in the third. Each point was fought for and somehow Amit came out on top. But only just. A really great match-up and can't wait for the re-match. Best of luck Adrian."  -- Amit
Reveal CommentMark Plonka bt Adrian Britton (Oct 18) 2-6, 6-0, 7-5

Player Comments:

  • "A very competitive even match with all sorts of shots and variety and long rallies. The last set alone was over an hour. Both players gaining ascendancy at various points of the match with particular styles and rhythm; momentum was definitely a huge factor throughout the match. Well played Adrian; looking forward to our re-match."  -- Mark
Reveal CommentAdrian Britton bt Alex Liddiard (Oct 10) 4-6, 6-3, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "Really tough battle against Alex who was very consistent off both sides and didn’t give away many free points. Looking forward to playing again soon."  -- Adrian
Reveal CommentAmit Dave bt Alex Liddiard (Oct 8) 6-0, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "Not the best start to the match with lights coming on late, wet and slippery, mossy courts. Alex couldn't find his rhythm despite clearly having very solid baseline game. Amit capitalised with keeping the ball in court and waiting for the unforced errors. Really tough match mentally. One of those you don't take any joy in winning and empathise with your opponent. Hope to face Alex again under better circumstances. "  -- Amit
Reveal CommentMark Plonka bt Diego Rincon (Oct 7) 6-2, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "A much tougher match than the score would indicate: many of the games went to deuce and some long fought rallies and games. Diego has a dangerous forehand and defence that was hard to breakdown. Thank you for the match. "  -- Mark
Reveal CommentAdrian Britton bt Angus Bearn (Oct 6) 6-4, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "Good competitive match against Angus. The match turned on a game midway through the second set that must have had at least 15 deuces before I got over the line and went on to take the match."  -- Adrian
Reveal CommentAlex Liddiard bt Angus Bearn (Oct 3) 6-3, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "A good match under the flood lights. Tight games with some long rallies and good variation on both sides. Thanks for the game Angus! "  -- Alex
Reveal CommentMark Plonka bt Amit Dave (Oct 1) 6-3, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "There will probably not be a wetter tennis match played this season! A very tricky match for both of us with slippery courts - so a lot of attempts to adjust from both parts. Amit has some super technique - and it was probably some fortune for me he is just getting back into the game after being off for almost 2 years i think. Amit's serve and forehand placement was a definite strength - only pipped by some of my consistency in the first set that saw me edge ahead early and then very close rallies in the 2nd set; i just managed to survive some long deuce games which made the difference."  -- Mark
Reveal CommentAngus Bearn bt Diego Rincon (Sep 30) 7-5, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "A fine, combative match with not the slightest sense of who would prevail until the final ball flew long. Great atmosphere at the David Lloyd club. "  -- Angus
Reveal CommentAlberto Legarre bt Adrian Britton (Sep 28) 3-6, 6-3, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "Good battle from Adrian. Very difficult to read shots and those slice passing shots were incredible."  -- Alberto
Reveal CommentMark Plonka bt Angus Bearn (Sep 26) 6-2, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "Very enjoyable match and tougher than the score might imply - we where both sweating out there by the 2nd set! I definitely needed to serve well to get out of trouble a few times; and had some great rallies. Angus is very dangerous when he places the ball where he wants! Well played Angus - thank you for the match. "  -- Mark
Reveal CommentAmit Dave bt Diego Rincon (Sep 23) 6-4, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "This was a great match despite the score line. The second set may look like a walkover but the match wasn't without it's close calls. Several deep deuce games that Amit could have capitalised on but Diego got the better off. Diego is very nimble and agile on the court and WILL chase everything down. He's got a great touch and has consistently deep ground strokes. Having his racket string break and using Amit's spare racket didn't dampen his ability to dictate some great points. Unfortunately Amit played a more consistent game with fewer errors overall. Great fun, can't wait to play again. Cheers Diego. "  -- Amit
Reveal CommentAmit Dave bt Angus Bearn (Sep 19) 6-2, 7-5

Player Comments:

  • "Fantastic day for it. First set saw me find a rhythm straight away and get ahead on the important points. Second set consisted of breaks on both sides with Angus playing some really decent shots and capitalising on my mental hiccup. Managed to grind out the win in the end and convert where mattered. Great match, really enjoyed it. Thank you Angus."  -- Amit

Reveal CommentAndrew Lilley bt Samuel Gruen (Oct 15) 6-3, 6-4

  • "To be honest I am quite surprised to have won this match. Sam was the better player with a great first serve and much better shot variety than me. I won through consistently managing to stay in the rally and choosing safe shots rather than ambitious ones. This tactic combined with the fact Sam hasn't played much this year meant I scraped a victory. "  -- Andrew
